By Saturday, day 9 of our vacation, my feet were really hurting... That's why I was in no hurry to get up.
And I could even convince Olivier to break his "walk everywhere" policy and take a tram to Vatican City - especially since hour hotel was close to a tram line that went there directly.
We were not the only visitors with that goal....
It's a long wait...
The giant St. Peter's dome
Through the colums
Walking away we passed by this miserable looking saint.
Nice voew over the Tiber
Inside, looking up a light shaft
A little rest
Many popes added to the building and left their names.
Popes liked their glamour!
Funny detail with elephant
And a fine view it is!
It's us! In Rome!
Quite the labyrinth
Over the bridge
Anyone who's someone is buried here!
What you can't hear is that in most places there's some kind of street musician. In front of the Pantheon it was a guy with his guitar who apparently had made it his mission to play and sing the entire Dark Side of the Moon album.
So we visited this monument with the help of Pink Floyd...
And another temple! One that was used to build houses into it....
We walked all the way back and I was half dead when we arrived at the restaurant near the hotel. At least we didn't have far to fall into our beds after dinner!
